I'm getting a weird error message building python:

ryan@DevPC-LX:~/stuff/cpydroid$ make
_PYTHON_PROJECT_BASE=/home/ryan/stuff/cpython _PYTHON_HOST_PLATFORM=linux-arm PYTHONPATH=./Lib:./Lib/plat-linux python3 -S -m sysconfig --generate-posix-vars ;\
	if test $? -ne 0 ; then \
		echo "generate-posix-vars failed" ; \
		rm -f ./pybuilddir.txt ; \
		exit 1 ; \
Could not import runpy module
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./Lib/", line 15, in <module>
    import importlib.util
  File "./Lib/importlib/", line 6, in <module>
    from ._bootstrap import module_from_spec
ImportError: cannot import name 'module_from_spec'
generate-posix-vars failed
make: *** [pybuilddir.txt] Error 1

I'm trying to build for generic ARM Linux before I attempt updating the changes. Makes sense theoretically.

Then again, when using autotools, NOTHING ever makes sense. I'm probably looking in the wrong direction...
